Aging Goth January 13, 2016 Share January 13, 2016 We have argued both sides of this situation and it just comes down to this... Patricia made choices based on what her family wanted her to do in order to keep the peace. Was it the best choice for her daughter? Probably not. We don't know what demons she incurred by having to let go of her child. The fact that she never had another child, to me, is very telling of her mental state then and now. Is she still making choices based on her family? Probably. In the end, she has to live with the choice she made for herself and the only child she will ever have. Kenya made choices based on her hurt and her pain of abandonment. It may never go away. She makes demands and plays the victim because of that hurt and pain. She longs for the ideal family she will never have unless she lets go and makes that happen for herself. That may take a long time and some serious therapy. The fact that she is seeing a therapist is a great start towards healing. Neither one of these women are whole. Neither one is really at fault. They both are damaged in some way and both need help to heal. 11 Link to comment
